    The DVD, the prequel comic and the platinum chip replica already sounds freaking cool and you add the playing cards with characters from the game and poker chips from the different casinos? Sounds like a great deal.

    And the limited edition actually sounds cool too because of the artwork and the history of the factions, specially for just 20 bucks. Bethesda can't even do special editions right, jesus.

    One thing I do like about the unique playing card artwork is how it was the first place where the character of Ulysses was hinted at.

    You had all these cards of characters from the game (and the Courier's hand) and then on the 3 of Clubs, you see this:
    You'd wonder where was this character in-game and wonder what's the deal with him along with that flag on his back. Plus you'd get a hint of his presence in the main game but that was it in the main game.

    Then the DLCs expanded on him and left hints of him throughout each while foreshadowing at his eventual confrontation with the Courier until Lonesome Road came along.

    All that build-up for the person billed as the Courier's foil and potential nemesis started from a playing card in the Collector's Edition.

    I have not even unwrapped my copy of the New Vegas Special Edition yet. Not because I am planning to sell it but it is nice to keep it like new.
    And is the Limited Edition game guide the Hardcover one? I also have that one.

    Coincidentally I have also not bought any special editions of games afterwards. I once bought the Bioshock 1 special edtion and I got the Aliens Colonial Marines special edition for my birthday but seeing as special editions are often so disappointing I could not bother with it any more.
    Now if Metroid Prime 4 comes out with a special edition and the goodies are good I may reconsider.

    Oh I did have the Wasteland 2 Special Edition (Collectors or Backers) but I never even opened it and sold it on.

    The codex informed me about this one

    Well, next we'll find out that the NCR, the Legion and the whole West Coast do not exist as they are mere fever dreams of the child 76 PC staring into a snowglobe replica of Vegas.

    Thankfully there's only one Enclave and that's the one from Fallout 2. I assume that tweet is referencing those idiots in Fallout 3 larping as the Enclave because that wasn't the real Enclave.

    I don't think Bethesda games will be that gender inclusive yet even if some fans will insist on it.

    Man, It will be a funny day at the NMA when in the future games, Bethesda show their version of NCR XD

    but it could be worse. they can bring the legion back. OH GOD .... Bethesda's Caesar Legion. Imagine the possibilities XD

    If you mean a day in which the majority on this forum will be absolutely pissed and that those who know something about hacking will try to ddox Bethesda's gaming service then I think you have a pretty accurate prediction

    Bethesda would screw both up, turning them into stereotypes.
    The Legion will be even more overdone Roman Empire esque, as for the NCR... eh probably some almost US sized government by now but very tyrannical and ineffective, needing to be overthrown to return the anarch... freedom to the people of the wastelands so that they can live in crap shack places again.

    The bullshit retconning from Bethesda has gotten so bad that i believed that to be true.

    Oh lordy, if they do this to Caesar's Legion, it would be histerical. I bet they don't even know the Caesar's Legion was founded after the bombs fell.

    Oh no, sweet child I know how it will be. Bethesda has a hard on for anything that is military. Its Micheal Bay level masturbatory obsession. NCR has a lot of cool armor and gamers from the West can sympathize with their democratic laws and ideology. They will be portrayed as virtuous defenders of democracy. I whole heartily believe that the next Bethesda Fallout game will be about a war between the NCR and Brotherhood of Steel. Both will be portrayed as virtuous and neither of them will be in the wrong or with few flaws. It will be discovered later in the game that the Legion or Legion remnants were behind it all(!) and they will be portrayed as mustache twirling villains who's sexism will turned up to 1000! Think Handmaids Tale level of obnoxious portrayal of misogyny. Subtly is not in Bethesda vocabulary. And Bethesda fans and shills in game journalism will say its the greatest thing Bethesda has done and that its better then what Obsidian did with the factions in New Vegas.

    The ass kissing replies from Bethesda fan boys is so cringe inducing and awful that I ended up rummaging around my mothers house for cigarettes to smoke the cringe off, for the first time in my life. Those fan boy replies can be summed up with this one image.

    Gee, who knew that the only thing encouraging Bethesda to inconvenience the player was micro-transactions?

    Everything looks so green! It hurts my eyes! -_-
    Wouldn't nuclear winter last for several years (predicted 99% blocked sunlight in first few years), thus destroying vegetation, except maybe for the most resilient plants. This untouched vegetation and perfectly trimmed golf courses are unacceptable.
    Wait, did they use G.E.C.K.?
